Etosha Short Trip May/June 2008

OK, we know this is crazy but this is how we travel. I have a business trip to Cape Town May 25-31, 2008. We want to do a short safari sidetrip and have decided Etosha National Park is the best bet. We'll fly from Cape Town to Windhoek.

We will have, at most, six nights and possibly only five for our trip to Namibia. We would appreciate ideas to maximize our time between Windhoek and Etosha, as well as in or around the park.

Thanks for any advice.

I would look at optimizing time, as you really don't have much of it. I would look at a guided trip with a company like Tou Safaris (Namibian based)...they have specialist guides who really add to your trip.

Look at taking in Okonjima (AfriCat Foundation) as well and possibly two nights on the eastern side of the park and a night on the Okaukuejo side. This will give you a good Etosha experience.

Have fun and hope it all works out.
